A total of 169 people were arrested during an 11-day, FBI-led human trafficking operation ahead of Super Bowl LIII. On Tuesday, the Violent Crimes Against Children/Human Trafficking Program and Metro Atlanta Child Exploitation Task Force announced it had also rescued 18 victims of human trafficking, including nine juveniles and nine adults.
The effort leading up to Super Bowl Sunday included more than 25 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and District Attorney’s Offices, along with seven non-government organizations.
